Mother Prodigy

I wear foundation. But not that powdery shit. I wear the foundation laid by my indigenous people. It’s that foundation that makes it so that past being globalized, I can still vocalize with confidence that i know where my roots are. I wear this foundation not upon my face, but within my soul. And I take this from my ancestors because I’ll be damned if I’d ever let an American or European corporation tell me what my foundation should look like.

Derek and Braeden are such a cute couple. Don’t hurt them. I want them to be happy and bad ass together.

Anonymous asked: white girls like sophia perrie lou and shit even gemma get on my nerves when they take other people's cultures and use them as a fashion statement. they think they look all cool and hippy but they really look ignorant.

Its the typical ‘im an ignorant white girl and i wanna be stylish and trendy’ syndrome.

It aint nothing new when it comes to the white girls linked with 1D. The more problematic the better.

zaiinmalikk:

All the girlfriends are fucking problematic. Lord please tell these white girls that people cultures are not there little play toy. Jesus.

White girls trying to be “trendy”, “fashionable” and “exotic”.

Anonymous asked: I find it funny that the fandom is silent since Sophia changed her Twitter pic and she's sporting an extravagant bindi in it. Everyone is literally praising that picture and I'm sitting her disgusted that another, excuse my language, white girl is using someones culture as a fashion accessory; but then again what else is new.

that-regular-chick:

The bindi is arguably the most visually fascinating of all forms of body decoration. Hindus attach great importance to this ornamental mark on the forehead between the two eyebrows — a spot considered a major nerve point in human body since ancient times. Also loosely known as ‘tika’, ‘pottu’, ‘sindoor’, ‘tilak’, ‘tilakam’, and ‘kumkum’, a bindi is usually a small or a big eye-catching round mark made on the forehead as adornment. The area between the eyebrows, the sixth chakra known as the ‘agna’ meaning ‘command’, is the seat of concealed wisdom. It is the centre point wherein all experience is gathered in total concentration. According to the tantric cult, when during meditation the latent energy (‘kundalini’) rises from the base of the spine towards the head, this ‘agna’ is the probable outlet for this potent energy.

I have no idea if Sophia is interested in Hinduism or Tantric meditation or knows anything about what the bindi represents. I’m guessing she probably just thinks it’s cute since she’s posing for her life and holding a drink. LOL I really do wish white people would stop looking at people of color as exotic creatures with fabulous accessories. Just because you’re ignorant about something (i.e. the culture, history and traditions of ALL poc), doesn’t mean it’s non-existent. And yeah, I doubt the newly minted Sophia worshippers will call out the inappropriateness of it. Some will probably “exact” it. Most of this fandom tends to fall back on white privilege when things get uncomfortably “ethnic”. :/
